Cannot find property that is for sale on county tax appraisers website

Asked by Tripnotics, Hialeah, FL Fri Oct 10, 2008

I'm trying to find the sales, tax and other history on a property in Miami-Dade County. I have visited the county tax appraisers website but cannot find it. Though the site seems to always work for houses, this specific property is a condo and the search is not finding it. Also, two more quick questions. If a property isn't listed as a short sale or an REO, is there anyway to find out if it is specifically either? And lastly, is there anyway I can find out if a home has a lean against it from the home owners association, etc? Thank you.

Sometimes teh condos are listed as a whole under 1 address. as far as if it is a short sale or reo it should be stated in the comments section, some reo's are now asking the listing agent to not put that in however if it is a short sale it has to be stated as contingent upon sellers mortgage company acceptance of a short sale. lastly you would want to contact the management company of the association to see if there are liens. you should do a title search as well. good luck

Sometimes finding a condo on the Miami-Dade County Tax Appraisers Office is tricky. Are you able to get the building? Sometimes the unit numbers are numbered differently than usual. It will help if you have a folio number- this will bypass the address search.

If a property is REO, it is usually stated in the comments section of the listing or advertisement as "corporate owned" or bank owned- obviously. Again, on the tax records- if updated, will reflect the owner as such, Usually the list price of a short sale property is the dead giveaway- it is listed at a ridiculously low price. Another way to determine if the property is being shorted is by askingb the owner or list agent.

HOA Liens are more tricky- if the HOA has already filed a law suit or has secured a judegment- that too will appear on the Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Docket- Just tyoe in the name of the Plaintiff [HOA] in the box.

Great questions!
